Sivakarthikeyan is teaming up with director Ponram again who earlier made films like Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan. The film was launched officially today in Chennai and the shooting will go on for a month from now. This yet to be titled film will feature yesteryear actress Simran in an important role. Sivakarthikeyan will be working for the first time with Simran in his career.
This film will also feature the gorgeous Samantha Ruth Prabhu as the love interest of Sivakarthikeyan’s role, and this will also be the first time for this pair to associate for a film together. The film will be majorly shot in and around Tenkasi.
Samantha has trained for her role in this film by learning the weapon-based ancient art form Silambam. The actress had even posted a video of practising Silambam on her social networking page. This untitled film is touted to be a rom-com and is set in a rural backdrop.
Besides these lead actors, actors like Napoleon, Yogi Babu, Manobala, Lal and ‘Motta’ Rajendran will also feature in this film. Produced by RD Raja under the banner 24 AM Studios, the film will also have few VFX scenes which will be supervised by RC Kamalakannan who worked on Baahubali.
Samantha is also part of another film in Telugu which has a rural backdrop. The film is alongside Mega Power Star Ram Charan and is titled Rangasthalam 1985. The film is being directed by Sukumar and is being produced by Mythri Movie Makers.
